Boom, a little town (16.000 inhabitants) near Antwerp, has got one highrise building.
A tower designed by the Belgian modernist Reanaat Braem. The tower has been renovated recently.

Taipei is very very very lonely. But I think it's very beautiful.

Also the reason for its loneliness can be, that area is very frequent for earthquakes and strong storms...which shows the success of the structure I think.

Simmilar things can be said about Sea Towers, they're built on artifficially made ground, where 80 years ago was sea. Current location of this skyscraper is a dozen or so meters from original seashore + We also have strong winds, usually in autumn so it's really piece of nice work with this building to endure such conditions ;]

Height is 141,6m, it's for now the only building in Gdynia over 55m.

I visited Gdynia 2 years ago when the tower was under construction.
I must say I like the final result. Nice tower!
